First I want to share with you the gifts I have received from the two swaps I entered. The first one was Deena’s Jingle for the cure. It came from my new friend Lea from Arkansas. Here was just inside the box. Mind you, this is supposed to be an ornament swap. Not to her!
She mailed me two handmade ornies~both beautiful.
Everyone's favorite, chocolate!
Some warm fuzzy socks. Two pair, so my little tootsies don’t get cold.
And my favorite. A shabby sheep she made from the last piece of an antique wool blanket she had been keeping in an antique trunk in the basement. Lea said she had been saving it for something, just didn’t know what! Until she saw that I was Shabby Sheep! then she says she knew! Isn’t that the sweetest sentiment? I have her on my mantle with all of my old Santa's. Thank you again, Lea. Like I said, they were all good tears!
Then Laura from Got Three Bags Wool, got my name in the Wool Snippets swap. She also totally went overboard with her giving!!!
First, this darling hooked pin. (I’ve always loved black sheep for some reason)
This great hooking/ditty bag.
Another pin, this one wooden! And adorable.
And the greatest for last! This BEAUTIFUL hooked angel mat! I cried when I opened her. It’s just so special. Ever since this cancer diagnosis, my mom and I have been collecting all things angelic. And this fits on the box on my coffee table like it was made to go there! Thank you so much, Laura.
We had a hooking~Christmas party at Dulcy’s house last night. I’ll show you the picks from that tomorrow! We had a great time, eating, drinking and hooking!
